hI Dan, just wondering where the term 'cones' comes from. Is it your personal terminology or from some internal art?

Peace.G.
Hi Graham, it's my term, and I got it from the world of acoustics and mechanical design, as cones are used to decouple and reduce vibrations in all kinds of things from drums, to speakers, to engines. They act as energy drain channels to flush out unwanted resonance - which is a build of unwanted energy. The points are the negative leads that create energy vortexes - which are then transformed into directed power.

All of this is my own terminology as applied to body, movement, and power. I want to design something - a model with some terminology - that's simple and specific that people can use to get rolling with this stuff.
